Borussia Dortmund 1-5 VfB Stuttgart: Lucien Favre’s side lose valuable ground in the Bundesliga title race after an embarrassing home defeat
- Borussia Dortmund were unbeaten in their last 11 home games against Stuttgart
- Lucien Favre’s side have now lost their last three home games in succession
- Dortmund are now five points off leaders RB Leipzig and four off Bayern Munich
Stuttgart forward Silas Wamangituka – who was booked after walking the ball into the net against Werder Bremen last Sunday – gave the visitors a shock lead from the penalty spot.
Six minutes from half time Gio Reyna, 18-year-old son of former Manchester City midfielder Claudio, equalised but Wamangituka gave Stuttgart the lead again on 52 minutes.
Philipp Forster doubled the away advantage on the hour and Tanguy Coulibaly made it four just three minutes later before Nicolas Gonzalez’ late goal to put the gloss on the victory.
